Panther DnD Monster 5E

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 67th episode of our beast series. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at the dnd 5e panther monster which is super cool! It’s found in the basic rules and is considered to be a cr 1/4, netting you 50 experience points on a kill.

Now the panther traditionally found in the forest, grassland and hill environments although i would make a strong argument for being found in jungles as well but that’s just me and not wizards of the coast talking. Ultimately there’s a couple things about this animal i would change but we’ll get into that in a little bit here. That being said, let’s take a quick look at its stats.

Panther DnD 5E Stat Block

  • Type: Medium beast, unaligned
  • Armor Class: 12
  • Hit Points: 13 (3d8)
  • Speed: 50 ft., climb 40 ft.

So the panther is considered to be a medium beast and that is unaligned of course. Taking a look at its AC is 12 which isn’t bad, 13 hit points calculated by rolling 3d8 and 50 feet movement and a climb speed of 40 feet as well which is pretty terrifying when you think about it. Now let’s take a look at its actual stats here. You can also check out this dire panther dnd 5e.

DnD 5E Panther Monster Stats

  • STR: 14 (+2)
  • DEX: 15 (+2)
  • CON: 10 (+0)
  • INT: 3 (-4)
  • WIS: 14 (+2)
  • CHA: 7 (-2)
  • Skills: Perception +4, Stealth +6
  • Senses: Passive Perception 14
  • Languages:
  • Challenge: 1/4 (50 XP)

You’ll see that very strong, very dexterous and quite wise as well. Make for a pretty lethal combo. Under skills you’ll see a plus four to perception which is certainly nothing to snuff out and a plus six to stealth which makes this creature even more terrifying. Under senses you’ll only see a passive perception of 14.

That’s actually a grievance i have with this stat block in particular give them darkvision kind of makes sense for them to have it in my opinion all the cat should have it but whatever so i would probably homebrew that it but if we’re going by raw they do not have it so just bear that in mind. Now let’s take a quick look at some of his other traits. Also check out shadow panther 5e.

Other Traits

  • Keen Smell: The panther has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.
  • Pounce: If the panther moves at least 20 feet straight toward a creature and then hits it with a claw attack on the same turn, that target must succeed on a DC 12 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is prone, the panther can make one bite attack against it as a bonus action.

So it’s not quite multi attack but pretty cool stuff regardless! Now let’s take a quick look at his actions here.


  • Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) piercing damage.
  • Claw: Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) slashing damage.

So you can do two such as bite and claw both are melee weapon attacks, both are +4 to hit, both are ever reach of five feet and both can only target one creature. The difference however is in damage. So the bite deals a five piercing damage calculated by rolling 1d6 and adding two. And the claw attack deals a four slashing damage calculated rolling 1d4 and adding two. Also read this what is stronger than a tarrasque?.

So quite cool stuff! Very interesting, i really do like the panther dnd 5e. In terms of how i’d use it kind of invisible stalkery, kind of vibes maybe i use them to build a sense of tension perhaps in your party for example if someone does quite good on a perception check but not really enough to discover the panther.

Tell them that you feel as though you are being watched right now and it has malicious intent or a curious intent or whatever the case may be. Do you know what is the most powerful monster in 5e?.


That being said, let me know how you would use the pantera dnd 5e in your games down beneath in the comment section. Also let me know what you think of them, how you change them, any thoughts, questions, comments, concerns all that good stuff. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy researching my friends.
